Roku channel will not play anything I was it does it show the title I hit play nothing happened

ROKU channel will not play any of the free Contant movies or TV shows when I click play it says loading for a half a second and does not play, live TV does not work either on the Roku channel I’ve had this TV for maybe four months was working fine. Internet connection is fine update is up to date. I even tried deleting the Roku channel shutting down the TV then restarting the TV and re-download it the Roku channel that did not work. I even tried a factory reset that did not work., the only reason why I bought a Roku TV is because I do not like subscription services the free Contant is fine with me, please help this is the ID number          ID 8M-293-42

Hi @Ronda0718,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

We will be more than happy to look further into this issue that you're experiencing with the Roku channel, but we will need more details. Can you please provide the following information?

  • Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
  • Does this issue occur on a specific channel? If so, what channel and what version or build is it? (This can be found by selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button.)
  • Tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times, and provide us with this ID).
  • Steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing

Once we have this information, we will be able to pass it along to the appropriate Roku team to investigate further.

Thanks,

John
